Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson said Tuesday he wants to see more retirees move to the Show-Me State as part of his pro-business agenda.
Parson outlined the agenda in Jefferson City to a crowd of 150 business leaders, business owners and economic development professionals at the Missouri Economic Development Council winter conference.
Parson also wants to roll back what he describes as “frivolous regulations”, saying that Missouri’s regulatory environment “has gotten out of hand”. He tells the audience that the biggest thing he heard from Missourians during the campaign involved government overregulation.
Parson, a Republican from Bolivar, was elected as Missouri’s 47th Lieutenant Governor in November, beating former Congressman and former State Rep. Russ Carnahan, a St. Louis Democrat.
Parson says he wants to ensure that Missouri is a competitive place to start a business and keep current businesses thriving.
